My Students

My students are young adventurers who come to my class with a smile every morning. Our neighborhood has families from all over the world, and our classroom is reflective of that. We often have many different cultures represented in our class. They take pride in their cultures knowing that everyone is celebrated and respected in our class.

Regardless of language barriers or differences in backgrounds, they all share a love of learning and a curiosity that I look forward to nurturing every day.

My Project

In our Pre-Kindergarten classroom we have a hour and a half nap time every day of school. The children in my class have to sleep on old, broken cots that are at least 10 years old and falling apart. A lot of the children don't sleep because they are uncomfortable and we do not have any sheets for them so they sleep on the plastic cots that are broken and falling apart. I would like to see the children on clean comfortable beds so they can rest a few inches off the floor instead of laying on the cold floor in our classroom.
